I do in fact have a DVI->LVDS converter box that I can't use.  I bought it
at the same time that I bought a 1600sw on ebay that arrived with the screen
shattered by FedEx (who never did reimburse me or the seller).  The
converter ran me around $200.  I'd be willing to trade it for something
interesting that has either a Sun or SGI badge on it :)
